Less than a month before Apple keynote where the iPhone 6 will be unveiled, it is expected that the price of the 5.5-inch model a staring price will cost around $800 due to the fact of being integrated with Sapphire Glass display. However, the company does not usually make such changes which currency, so it is expected that the price is greater than $600 when it is sold.
A very respected person in the industry, Horace Dediu, has dared to make predictions about the prices of new handsets from Apple. Suggests that the 5.5-inch model will sell for $800 and will be launched this year, despite recent rumors pointed to Apple would launch separately to avoid competition between the two models.
These price forecasts are for the basic model of the terminal, versions with more memory would cost more. If we follow the patterns of the company would normally pay $100 more per each memory enhancement. Although the prices are quite high compared to the previous iPhone, as some think that this will not affect sales.
If we continue with the recent rumors that iPhone will be a 5.5 inch with 128 GB of internal memory and based on the forecast, it would not be unreasonable to think that could exceed $1,000 retail price. The iPhone 5S with 64 GB costs $849 without contract.
The price of the 5.5-inch model of the iPhone 6 increased over the 4.7 model would have unique characteristics because, apart from a superior screen. Some of these features would be the sapphire crystal, which might not include the smaller version, or optical image stabilizer. For now, we’ll have to wait for September 9 event for Apple to confirm or deny these predictions.
